Hi,

The following ZIP file containing images is marked as a video:

https://archive.org/details/WebButtonsrepealThe17thAmendment

The ZIP file contains 3 still JPGs and 3 animated GIFs.

Now that Community Media allows uploading images, could you please switch it over and mark it as an image?

Also, is there a way to have the contents of the ZIP file show up as multiple images in the preview page? The ZIP file only contains images and a TXT file.

Thank you!

moved. for images you need to upload loose files to display in the slide show. the system will not crack open a zip for mediatype=image

Hi,

I uploaded the TXT, GIF, and JPG files (leaving the ZIP file alone) and it automatically changed the category back to the "Movie". Also, only the JPGs are showing up in the preview. I don't have anything else to upload in that entry, so could you please move it back to image, and take a look at why only JPGs are showing but not GIFs?

Thank you, Dan

moved. when multiple mediatypes are uploaded there is a heirarchy the system uses to decide where it belongs. in oder of priority it is:
1. movies
2. audio
3. texts
3. image

gifs are considered a movie format. the system assigned them format=Animated Gif. you can see that in the files.xml at https://archive.org/download/WebButtonsrepealThe17thAmendment/WebButtonsrepealThe17thAmendment_files.xml
